Cash and livelihoods

Ensuring that vulnerable households have sustainable means of living, not only increases their access to a stable income, but also their dignity, and ability to be active in the society.

Livelihoods support generates a positive impact in the empowerment of individuals, making it possible to make them leaders of their own development, ensuring self-sufficiency and breaking with dependency dynamics. When possible, cash is used to ensure livelihoods are restored in an effective, efficient and sustainable way. Learn about the work of the Red Cross Red Crescent Movement in this field, accessing different resources related to cash and livelihoods below.
